"Local Markets" United Kingdom Shopping Tip by Wowmoment

United Kingdom Shopping: 40 reviews and 29 photos

Today of course the merchandise is a little different. As well as the obvious fruit, vegetables and clothing there can be found craft stalls and almost anything you can think of.

Half the fun is just browsing and soaking up the local atmosphere

Sometime special themed markets can be found with everything from Antiques to Italian Food. Local Tourist Information Offices should help. This site will help locate one -
